As video integration into newspaper and magazine Web sites accelerates, many wonder if in-stream advertising will prove to be profitable. We know that many of the big newspaper publishers are expanding video offerings but most are not yet successful in selling ads in or around their clips.
But are in-stream ads the total value proposition of video? Adam Berry, VP of Brightcove, who speaks in this clip from the Beet.TV Online Video Roundtable, begs to differ.
He says that video is an essential part of a successful web site and the greater value is the ultimate success of the site and the value of its audience. Good video makes for a better site. Amen.
Perhaps a corolary would be newspapers using photography to make a richer experience, but not selling ads on the photo? After all, video production costs have become close to still photography for some publishers who are using inexpensive video cameras.
Another Win for Brighcove with CondeNet

Video Has Value to Marketers Beyond the Pre-Roll, Execs Say
For marketers, the value of online video is not necessarily in-stream ads either, as is pointed out in the conversation by Bud Rosenthal, the CEO of TurnHere, the producer/syndicator of informational videos created for corporate clients. Bud makes his comments in the beginning of this segment.
Shoba Purushothaman, CEO of the NewsMarket, a company which distributes corporate videos, makes a similar point. Online video is a powerful tool for marketers -- and getting the point across with information vs. conventional advertising can work very well.
This part of the roundtable was moderated by Erick Schonfeld, co-editor of TechCrunch.
Addendum...Can you Digg this?
Some publishers like Revision3 are making progress with selling "in-program" advertising to sponsors and doing very well, reports Peter Kafka in his MediaMemo on AllthingsD this morning.

At PubCon South at Dallas search and social media conference WebmasterWorld video content producer Vanessa Zamora spoke with Morgan Brown, director of marketing at online video firm TurnHere. Brown spoke about online video, and TurnHere's global network of some 7,000 video makers as well as the firms work on social media outreach projects for companies such as Toyota and Audi. Brown told Zamora about some of the advantages online videos made by firms such as TurnHere offer, including fast turnaround time and low cost for videos made specifically for the Web. Brown told Zamora about the importance of dispelling the myth that still exists among some small businesses that online video is expensive. Before concluding their talk, Brown shared some of what he feels are the advantages of using online video optimization in achieving prominent search engine rankings, an area which Brown said is still in its infancy similar to where SEO was a decade ago.
A novel of faith lost and hope found in translation, Songs for the Butcher's Daughter is at once an immigrant's epic saga, a love story for the ages, a Yiddish-inflected laughing-through-tears tour of world history for Jews and Gentiles alike, and a testament to Manseau's ambitious genius.
Outrageously funny, Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar . . . has been a breakout bestseller ever since authors—and born vaudevillians—Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein did their schtick on NPR’s Weekend Edition. Lively, original, and powerfully informative, Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar . . . is a not-so-reverent crash course through the great philosophical thinkers and traditions, from Existentialism (What do Hegel and Bette Midler have in common?) to Logic (Sherlock Holmes never deduced anything). Philosophy 101 for those who like to take the heavy stuff lightly, this is a joy to read—and finally, it all makes sense!
Exclusive interview with Dan Gordon on his new book, Postcards from Heaven.
Helene Cooper is "Congo," a descendant of two Liberian dynasties -- traced back to the first ship of freemen that set sail from New York in 1820 to found Monrovia. Helene grew up at Sugar Beach, a twenty-two-room mansion by the sea. Her childhood was filled with servants, flashy cars, a villa in Spain, and a farmhouse up-country. It was also an African childhood, filled with knock foot games and hot pepper soup, heartmen and neegee. When Helene was eight, the Coopers took in a foster child -- a common custom among the Liberian elite. Eunice, a Bassa girl, suddenly became known as "Mrs. Cooper's daughter."
For years the Cooper daughters -- Helene, her sister Marlene, and Eunice -- blissfully enjoyed the trappings of wealth and advantage. But Liberia was like an unwatched pot of water left boiling on the stove. And on April 12, 1980, a group of soldiers staged a coup d'état, assassinating President William Tolbert and executing his cabinet. The Coopers and the entire Congo class were now the hunted, being imprisoned, shot, tortured, and raped. After a brutal daylight attack by a ragtag crew of soldiers, Helene, Marlene, and their mother fled Sugar Beach, and then Liberia, for America. They left Eunice behind.
A world away, Helene tried to assimilate as an American teenager. At the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill she found her passion in journalism, eventually becoming a reporter for the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. She reported from every part of the globe -- except Africa -- as Liberia descended into war-torn, third-world hell.
In 2003, a near-death experience in Iraq convinced Helene that Liberia -- and Eunice -- could wait no longer. At once a deeply personal memoir and an examination of a violent and stratified country, The House at Sugar Beach tells of tragedy, forgiveness, and transcendence with unflinching honesty and a survivor's gentle humor. And at its heart, it is a story of Helene Cooper's long voyage home.
Mac is a grief-stricken father in mid-life about to have an extraordinary experience with God. His great sadness began four years ago on a weekend camping trip, when his 6-year-old daughter, Missy, was murdered. What he couldn't know then, but is about to learn, was God's purpose for Missy's death. Roger Mueller's clear, gentle voice characterizes Mac's family with high-spirited joy and laughter. His portrayal of Missy's animated excitement makes her especially believable. His polished performance of grief-stricken Mac brings tears. With empathy and sensitivity, Mueller captures the mysterious voices of those who have invited him to the now abandoned, yet transformed, cabin in the wilderness. This compelling fantasy explores themes of love, loss, and blame.
In THE BREAKTHROUGH, veteran journalist Gwen Ifill surveys the American political landscape, shedding new light on the impact of Barack Obama’s stunning presidential campaign and introducing the emerging young African American politicians forging a bold new path to political power.
Theodore Mead Fegley has always been the smartest person he knows. By age 12, he was in high school, and by 15 he was attending a top-ranking university. And now, at the tender age of 18, he's on the verge of proving the Riemann Hypothesis, a mathematical equation that has mystified academics for almost 150 years. But only days before graduation, Mead suddenly packs his bags and flees home to rural Illinois. What has caused him to flee remains a mystery to all but Mead and a classmate whose quest for success has turned into a dangerous obession.
At home, Mead finds little solace. His past ghosts haunt him; his parents don't understand the agony his genius has caused him, nor his desire to be a normal kid, and his dreams seem crushed forever. He embarks on a new life's journey -- learning the family business of selling furniture and embalming the dead--that disappoints and surprises all who knew him as "the young Fegley genius."
Equal parts academic thriller and poignant coming-of-age story, LIFE AFTER GENIUS follows the remarkable journey of a young man who must discover that the heart may know what the head hasn't yet learned.
